MalwareBytes saved my PC


Recommended Posts

So, a few weeks back i had a big virus on my PC that installed other viruses on my PC and malwares such as Keyloggers and such. I heard about this program called MalwareBytes and decided to give a try. I started up my PC and nothing started up, not my Avast! or even Steam. I had to start them up manually, then i got to install MalwareBytes. It checked and cleaned my PC, and after i restarted my PC, and everything worked out perfectly. Thank you MalwareBytes, you saved my Computer and saved me over 800€.

what did Malwarebytes detect .... was it PUP ?


be aware that avast PUP detection is default off except for in bootscan, so if you want PUP detection you need to turn it on



pondus is right,  go to scan settings/sensitivity/ Pup and suspicious files/ Check the box

Mostly keyloggers and malicious programs. About 14

The complete detection, removal and repair of malware problems often requires the use of multiple tools, as explained here:

The complexity of finding, preventing, and cleanup from malware


If you would like an expert "second-opinion" to be sure you are fully clean, I suggest that you might want to please follow the advice in this pinned topic: Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.
It explains the options for free, expert help >>AND<< the suggested, preliminary steps to expedite the process.
A malware analyst will assist you with looking into your issue - the helper will guide you through scanning, cleanup and repair.

The helper can also provide you with resources to harden your security to prevent future infections.

It will only cost you a bit of your time.
